An Israeli talking about cleansing? I'm not even going to touch that with a 10 foot pole...

And BioSlayerwhilst I understand that it is fashinable for young folks such as yourselves to insult France, do bear in mind that without french help, there might never have been a US. (Or so I believe, does anyone more knowledgable to correct me?) Also, have you ever heard of the french resistance? At the rate you folks are loosing troops in Iraq, I don't even want to imagine how the french would tear you apart...

FalconWMC. Yes. The fact that they have a million men under arms and quite possibly nuclear weapons may have something to do with the fact that we haven't.

Neat - Translator!! - I like that!  Shocked Shocked Shocked

What I meant was that we should ivade/disarm North Korea, if we had some way of finding out whether or not it would becoem a nuc and massive war. (Which if we invade right now is going to happen.)

All we do is sneak a spy into their nuclear facilities, then rewire the missiles if they have them. When they try to fire, the warhead goes off before the rockets can even fire. If no missiles, we simply contaminate their refining plant with about a pound of Tungsten dropped into their cores, or just tamper with the coolant system. Either way, they nuke themselves into oblivion, the U.S. calls it a "terrible tragedy", and offers assistance to the now beleagured country...at a cost. (We're not Druuge. TELL ME WE'RE NOT DRUUGE!)

You DON"T want to let the nukes go off - Do so and it will affect the USA through radiation and everyone but Iraq (Deslator Necro99) Wink Will be exposed to it. What you want to do is attack and when/if they launch the nukes - you have nukes with no uraium in them - through spies and other good stuff. Or you could do a precision bombing strike against all the silos - You just have to make sure you get them all.

Are we still talking about these supposed AQ nukes that's hiding out with Osama, or are we actually contemplating carpet bombing North Korea here? Either way, not gonna work well.

Not carpet bombing - but bomb of the silo that hold the nukes - that way they would be unable to launch them. (That is what I meant when I said that we had better make sure we get them all!)

I really don't think so. France doesn't have the good old fashioned religious zeal to suicide bomb endlessly. Plus, western countries tend not to get pissed on the same level if they're occupied by another western nation. The French would put up a better official war I'd hope, but then that'd be the end of it. But honestly, if we went to war with France just because of the current mutual pettiness, I would move to Guam.

It is precisely because they are not religious fanatics that the French would be more effective. They weren't all about dying with a blaze of glory and getting into heaven. They were all about causing the maximum harrassment. Find an incoming oil truck and dump 5 kilos of sugar in while no one is looking. Not too much later, they have to reconstruct the engines of several tanks and humvees. Sure, you may say that someone is always looking, but the French would find a way.

They would both go for roadside bombs, sure.

Here is a different angle to think about it. The USA was called "fanatics" too. In the revolutionary war were we fought for independance, the british call us many a bad name such as religious fanatics. We replied with "we are fighting for our country". I am sure that Iraq feels the same way. (Now on the subject of if they are right or not is another mattter to discuss. But they called us that because we were not fighting like a normal army. We were sniping through the brush and they were marching in neat rows. Well, when you think about it, we are experiencing the same thing. Anyway - just another (weird) angle to look at it from.

Well, to quote the Desolator, "Make it glow!" would be the correct term to use on N Korea if we did indeed cause any of their stuff to go critical. The fallout might reach us, but most would probably hit the ocean and mutate the fish in some ill manner. That, and China would be a wasteland too.

Yes, but look at the "accident" that happen in Russia that involed nuclear power. We are dectecting it in the north pole, USA and north of USA. Since the explosion would be so big with china - it would probaly affect almost all of the world.  As a desolator would say, "time for meltdown!"

yea without france america would most likely still be a colony of the UK, but without the US france would be speaking german right now, twice over. but that is history. right now france is full of poeple who hate america with a passion for little or no reason. (Inferority complex)

North korea is a powerkeg ready too blow. Bush is doing the right thing right now. using china to pressure NKorea to calm down.

And yet another fashionable opinion. Have you been to France? Do you know very many french people? Though many french (and I might point out, the rest of the world as well) dislike the US, you'll have to search a bit deeper to find someone who HATES the US.

I'm not adding anything to the discussion, I know, but this is a pet peeve of mine. I see the same thing here, where it's "fashionable" to criticize america for everything because "everyone knows america is powerhungry, stupid, and you can sue everyone LOL LOL WTF OMG!!!" On your side, I see people calling France and Germany cowards because that's "hip". Well, enjoy your freedom fries and hope you feel trendy. But unless you can present a COMPELLING argument as to why the FRENCH HATE the US due to their INFERIORITY complex, then you might want to rest up on the foreigner bashing.

Side note: Also, wer're talking french here. They dislike everyone Wink Don't feel to special.

I know they do but, I don't know why they dislike the US. I mean, they saved the US of A in the revolutionary war.  The USA saved them kinda in the war of 1812 (The British might have attacked the french when they were done with us). Not to mention that the USA helped save them in WWI. Then in WWII, USA saved French, English and many other countries from Hitler - So what do they have to complain about when it comes to the USA?

I'm starting to see the downside of having a offtopic forum in this thread. How do you explain what people don't want to hear. I'm in a hurry now, but I'll be back later with some fun and interesting facts about the US, mighty saviour of the world, and the evil villain France. I realise that I may be wasting my time trying to work this through to you, but I am going to do my best to try. Especially since I feel there might be some hope for Falcon yet.
